Texan gets 11.5 years for meth distribution

This article was published April 23, 2014 at 7:23 a.m.

TEXARKANA — A DeSoto, Texas, man who pleaded guilty in western Arkansas to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine has been sentenced to 11½ years in federal prison.

Prosecutors say 42-year-old Claudie Miller Jr. was arrested in a methamphetamine distribution investigation that began in 2011. U.S. Attorney Conner Eldridge says Miller was identified as the primary source for the illegal stimulant in supplying the ring. Court records show that the drug was being shipped in one-pound quantities.

Authorities also confiscated $147,000 in cash found during a traffic stop of a car belonging to Miller during the investigation.

Miller pleaded guilty last year in Texarkana to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and was sentenced Tuesday.
